hydroxatone AM/PM anti-wrinkle complex | beauty review

Changing climates can wreck havoc on the skin. I moved from Chicago to Florida thinking I could continue with the same beauty regimen I used in the cooler Midwest. Wrong.

Getting older also adds a level of change I don't think I will ever get accustomed to. You go to sleep with no wrinkles, one day you wake up and notice them in places you didn't know wrinkles could exist. 

Add hyperpigmentation, sunglass raccoon eyes and a wrinkle across my forehead and I started a fervent search for help in the form of a cream.

iFabbo reached out to me to review Hydroxatone AM/PM Anti-Wrinkle Complex and I immediately signed-up!

Here's the basics:

AM/PM Anti-Wrinkle Complex SPF 15 is a unique moisturizer specifically designed to increase skin hydration and soften the appearance of visible wrinkles by helping the skin stimulate the production of collagen. Increased collagen produces a long-term reduction in visible wrinkles, crow's feet, and facial lines. Your multi-functional anti-aging powerhouse and moisturizer in one! Hydroxatone is formulated for all skin types, both women and men, and all ethnicities.

Not one to believe the hype I used it once a day, in place of my regular moisturizer. I'm not down with wearing extra products after removing makeup in the evening, and I couldn't get with wearing sunscreen to bed. It needed to work with one application, once per day. 

So let me tell what I hated about this product:

  • It's very heavy. If you have oily skin, you won't likely want to use this product. I found that leaving my skin a bit damp helped to soak it up more as it set into my skin
  • I would not wear it as a beach-day moisturizer, because of the weight I think it would glide right off. Also, I prefer a 30 or higher SPF

What did I love about it?

  • Over the course of three weeks, with just once a day use, it has softened that forehead wrinkle!
  • Hyperpigmentation has faded a bit on my cheeks, and my neck
  • Overall, my skin is so much softer and brighter. I haven't used my CC cream over @hydroxatone since the second week, my skin tone has evened out that much
  • Less is absolutely more, and I have found my new favorite travel cream

The bottom line:

Would I recommend trying Hydroxatone AM/PM Anti-Wrinkle Complex? Yes, yes, yes! Go team #AntiWrinkleSPF @hydroxatone! I am going to check out the entire line to see if I my skin can benefit from other products in the line.

Readers, can you recommend a favorite anti-wrinkle product?
